The narrative arcs of Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Last Jedi have plenty of similarities, and it’s Star Wars storytelling at its best

I think you can make a very compelling case that Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are the two greatest Jedi we've ever seen.

On Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker and the desire some Star Wars fans have to see familiar characters stay the same

As we have followed the story of The Book of Boba Fett so far, one of the criticisms the show has received is about how Star Wars has ruined the character of Boba Fett. The criticism goes that the version of the character in this show is vastly different than the one in the original [...]

How the Luke Skywalker of The Last Jedi and The Mandalorian perfectly fit together

Luke Skywalker's appearance in The Mandalorian was something that many Star Wars fans had been hoping and dreaming of seeing for a long, long time.
